Chicken Coop #3: Walls are up and details are ... getting there. Chicks will move in soon

06-08-2016 04:09 PM by ConnieReed | 11 comments »

I’m almost done! Well, almost done enough to move the chick-lets into their new home – I have a feeling that I’ll be playing with (ie. decorating and upgrading this) for some time. The future outdoor run and any decor and fancy accessories will come later. This is really coming together well! I’ve learned so much, and by using reclaimed materials where possible, I’ve saved a ton of money as well. The total cost of this (including new and specialty gear) is more o...

New Wood Shop tools #1: Laguna Swift, 4x4 and software

06-04-2016 04:24 PM by MagDaddy2 | 0 comments »

Hello, long time since I’ve been on site. Sorry to say, not due to wood working projects… Work has me jumpin building new automation, test equipment and I’m pushing to use Fanuc robotics more than we usually do. Never mind that, my topic and question:Has anyone here used the Laguna Swift CNC router and 3D design/G-code software? I’m thinking about a purchase and would like opinions. Thanks Magdaddy

Knives, making scales, different rivets, handles

05-25-2016 12:33 PM by dbray45 | 17 comments »

One of the things missing on this site is making knife scales. This is not something I normally do but I bought my wife some knives that required scales and during the process, noticed that we had several knives where the handles looked like crap, were cracked, and even broken. Some of them had really good blades and some were junk (these were tossed). During this process, the knives that I bought from Woodcraft have really nice blades but the rivets were less than desirable, sam...

Chicken Coop #2: Work fast, the chicks have landed

05-04-2016 04:31 PM by ConnieReed | 7 comments »

I’ve been using every nice day we’ve had, that I can, to work on my chicken coop. I am having so much fun with this! Part of it is being proud of myself for tackling this project, and doing pretty good with it too, and part of it is the crafting part of it. I didn’t simply draw up plans and go to the lumber yard. For one thing, I doubted my ability to precisely follow the plans. I don’t have the skills or the tools to make all the exact-perfect cuts, angles, etc. I nee...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4BlNiZCJQY I needed a way to access higher shelves in my workshop, so I made myself a step stool out of some pallet wood! I hope you enjoy!

DIY Tools | Woodworking #1: A Simple Stand for a Belt Sander

04-29-2016 09:07 AM by Humus Workshop | 0 comments »

First of all I want to thank many of you for the friendly welcom you have given me. And then I will be brief because actually it is a very small and simple project, but perhaps it can be useful for someone. You can watch the building process on this video: https://youtu.be/5gfi6SDOa3c I still need a large stationary belt sander but is a future project for me. For now, this is a very simple solution to do and that has helped me a lot at time to work. The main thing this stand is that it ...

TV stand #2: Measurements and cuts

04-08-2016 04:06 PM by TripleXDom | 2 comments »

From what I have spent this entire week working on was acquiring and perfecting my measurements. I plan on making the length up to 48 inches, the height up to 32 inches, and the width to 16 inches. I also had to measure my consoles and TV box but the way the plywood is cut they all fall into perfect increments. I haven’t actually gotten to start cutting or physically get a feel for what I’m gonna do because I have to gather the money so I can get the wood, which I plan on doing n...
